Everyone needs a few survival strategies for getting through the lunch routine. When I'm short on time and supplies, one of mine is to assemble a few whole foods that I can feel good about feeding to my kids. I wanted to share a couple of these no-frills lunches; they are nothing I'm proud of but they got the job done.

No Frills Lunch #1: blanched Romanesco broccoli, smoked ham, cubes of Manchego cheese, dried cherries, chocolates, and Seckel pears

No Frills Lunch #2: smoked ham, mustard-y coleslaw, roasted beets, wheat bread, apples
